Showcase under the bright lights

Sun Advocate sports reporter

Coming into the 2013 season, Jeff Blanc's Carbon High football team spent much of the summer preparing to embrace a ground game as the focal point of their offense.

It was fitting that on the first play from scrimmage quarterback Jarod Lessar connected with wide receiver Zac Hathaway for an 80-yard touchdown in the annual Blue-White game to open the 2013 season. The White team took the victory 35-20."We knew they (the blue team defense) were expecting us to run on the first play, so we decided to call a pass and it worked," said Hathaway.

Lessar threw for three touchdowns to lead the way for the White team to the win. Of the eight touchdowns scored by both teams, five came through the air.

Despite the initial fireworks to start the game, the new ground attack was on full display as the Dinos utilized a number of different handoffs, pitches, bootlegs among other plays that they hope will bring success this season.

"We'll try to be multi-dimensional as we can," said Blanc after the game.

Blanc credited the team with the hard work they put in during the offseason, which he believes paid off in the team's first opportunity to play under the lights in front of a crowd.

"A lot of guys have worked hard in the offseason in the weight room and it showed tonight," he said. "Our offensive line created holes for the running backs, the defense made some good stops and our skill guys all played well."

The Dinos will now turn their focus as they prepare to open the 2013 season with a road game against Grand High on Friday night at 7 p.m.
